Resin-inlaid Wood

A non-jewellery post, for a change. We were running a bit short on shelving in the kitchen and wanted somewhere we could store all the preserves we're going to make from the garden this year, so we went to the timber yard to see what they had. They had this, 155cm long piece of chestnut.

Read this article on how a guy filled up the cracks in a panel of wood with glowing blue resin. Its looks really cool.

Building a Reflow Oven: Part 1 – Getting Started

Some people (not me) can successfully solder incredibly tiny Quad Flad No-lead (QFN) parts such as the one in the photo below by hand using a soldering iron or a hot air gun (the photo below is from a commercial board, not hand soldered). For wireless devices and modern sensors, surface mount device (SMD) packages as small as QFN have become the normal, default package.
